Feb 18-24: 2014 RELaY Conference in Malta

We had a wonderful time in Malta attending the RELaY conference. RELaY stands for Reconciliation, Evangelisation, Leadership, and Youth and is a network of lay leaders throughout Europe working to bring spiritual life back into Europe. Due to limited flights and our desire to not arrive late and not to need to leave early, we arranged to arrive a day early and stay a day after. That gave us some time to get in some sight-seeing during our trip.

Everyone (except many of the locals) stayed at a nice hotel where the conference was hosted. This is a view from the balcony of our 6th floor room …

We were one of the few ministries that had arranged to have an information table in addition to teaching a workshop. Since we were there early we were able to secure a strategic location for our table and had a lot of people stop by to inquire about Community Bible Study.

We had 13 people attending our two workshop sessions. We took them through a short sample study and got great participation. There was much interest expressed and we expect to see several studies started as a result. Thank you for your prayers.

The hotel provided a variety of foods to experience so of the local cuisine as well as some foods you would expect to get anywhere. Meals were a wonderful time to meet new people and get to know one another better.

One thought on “Feb 18-24: 2014 RELaY Conference in Malta

  1. I tried to leave you a comment on the site, but since I have set up a wordpress account (that I’ve never used!), it insists I post through that, and I didn’t want to.   It sounds like you had a good turnout for the workshops, and I think it was a grand idea to also put up a display — I bet a lot more than the 13 participants picked up brochures and will contact you later.  I’m sure it will prove to be a most worthwhile conference to have attended.   I ‘m looking forward to your “tourist” photos later!
